Social emotional learning or SEL is a top priority for many schools and families. This article will share ideas for incorporating SEL into everyday activities for the classroom or home.
SEL Peace Corner
Create a Peace Corner in your classroom as an area for students to go to when they feel angry, down, or just need a moment to themselves. Include “calming” elements like noise-cancelling headphones, music, and books. This is a great and easy way to encourage students to practice self-regulation and calming techniques.
SEL Emotional Check-ins
Having emotional check-ins with students is another technique for incorporating SEL that can help them practice identifying their emotions and learn how to manage them. This could be a great activity to include in morning meetings. It can also give educators a better understanding of how students are feeling and can help them identify potential issues.
